  1. Odd wording.

    Did these two actually state ‘United States Currency’ or was that part of the write up?

    I guess they weren’t taking any of those crappy store credits the place is famous for.

  2. The blessings of Section 8 housing vouchers …..

    thank you el Presidente Obama!

  3. Yup… President Obama started Section 8 housing vouchers.

    It is all his fault.

    And there was NEVER any crime in Crystal Lake before President Obama was elected (twice).

    Good points, OldMan.

  4. Ah, the signs of demographics are changing around us, and here is the result.

    Wake up folks, our sleepy McHenry towns are getting more of Chicago & Waukegan’s undesirables, and quickly.

    These folk don’t care about our town, our shared community or anything else for that matter.

    Just saw gang graffiti tagged on an electrical box in downtown CL the other day…here comes the ‘hood!

  5. Wow! You all are a bunch of racist dolts. I hope your Crystal Lake crumbles ya ninnies.
